From a feature and content standpoint, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is probably the best. The sheer amount of characters, places to go (including all of Gotham city) and gadgets are huge. There is open world gameplay, voice acting and every villain or hero you can think of. Vehicle combat is terrific as well.
It's not all perfect though. The story of this game is arguably lackluster. It's only really "ok" and doesn't get the other heroes involved enough. Performance in the open world Gotham is spotty as well.
Levels are well done, suits are cool and flying around as Superman can't be beat. Co-op play is still very fun, if not essential.
From a gameplay/content standpoint, this is the best. Even so, the story and some elements of the game are not up to par with other offerings. It's all still worth it in the Lego Batman series.

Lego Batman was the best selling game of the franchise and gave a new twist on Lego Video Games. Now, as The Dark Knight was to Batman Begins, Lego Batman 2 improves on nearly every aspect of the original. It adds an open-world, expands on the story, has voice acting, and increases the size of levels. The result is a funny game that evokes all the nostalgia of the older Lego games while creating a fresh new style of gameplay. If there is one game that truly shines in the legacy of the original Lego Star Wars, it is Lego Batman 2. While it is sometimes buggy and has a small character selection compared to other games, it uses the toyline to its fullest and incorporates the best elements of both Lego and DC to create a fun experience for gamers of all ages.
Poorly executed sequel!Thomazen | Feb. 11, 2014 | See all Thomazen's reviews »
I had my hopes high, after playing Lego Marvel Superheroes. Unfortunately, this game is nowhere near the standards of the newest Lego game. Alright, it is one year younger, but the finish of this game is horrible. I have been stuck by bugs for several levels, and in the end, I just didn't wanted to go on finding any more bugs. It was put out too soon without having a good control, and it ends up being one of my most horrific PC-game experiences in a long time. If only there was a way to get ones money back after been playing it. I do not personally recommend it. Also, want to know of the many bugs, do a quick Google-search, and there will arrive many more 'horror' stories like this. Something I should have checked before buying it.
The only plus is the many DC characters.
Got me hooked!Numbi | Sept. 30, 2013 | See all Numbi's reviews »
I picked this one up because I loved the original Lego Batman and Green Man Gaming had it on sale for a price that was too good to refuse. After playing it for only a few hours I can definitely recommend this game to fans of the Lego games, fans of the Batman franchise and anyone who loves a good game. There is a huge city to explore, tons of very cool missions and the voice acting (yes voice acting!) is top notch. The original game was pretty humorous but this one takes it to a whole new level. I'm absolutely hooked!

This is the Best LEGO game ever, hands down. The writing and voice acting made it for me. I actually laughed at this game. Being a LEGO game, it has a tonne of characters. Superman felt just as overpowered as he should be. The flying controls were kind of wonky, however. The graphics aren't great but they get the job done. The music cues were done well. I enjoyed this game a lot.
